Slide Sandals With Heels – A slider is a form of footwear distinct from shoes and much like flip-flops. They’re backless and open-toed, basically an open-toed mule. Usually, all slides are sandals. Thongs and flip flops are normally labeled independently. Slides can be high-heeled, flat-heeled or somewhere between, and may cover around the whole foot from ankle to toe, or may have only a few narrow straps. They typically consist of a single strap or perhaps a sequence of straps across the toes and the lower half of the foot to carry the shoe on the foot.
